Russian VSaaS Startup Claims Massive Growth

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 30, 2014

VSaaS has been a bust so far.

Startup after startup has quietly fallen by the wayside. Even Axis has not been able to solve it.

Only one startup to date has truly succeeded, Dropcam, fueled by Silicon Valley marketing / millions.

Now, a fast growing Russian startup, claiming 600,000 users, is aiming to be the next. In this post, we dig into their offering, product positioning, growth rate and future.
